The workshop will covers modern approaches to computational economics using the latest and most interesting methods. The main focus is on dynamic, macroeconomic models. The training material is jointly developed by Thomas Sargent (a Nobel Prize winning macroeconomist) and John Stachurski (Australian National University) and currently supported by the Sloan Foundation.
Prof. John Stachurski, Research School of Economics, Australian National University
John Stachurski received his PhD from Melbourne University in 2002. His research focuses on stochastic dynamics, econometric theory, time series analysis and numerical and computational methods. Previously, he held positions at UCL in Belgium and Kyoto University in Japan. In 2007 he received the IJET Lionel W. McKenzie prize for contributions to economic theory.
